‘Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only this meeting that a new world is born.’
I’ve had a few folks comment recently that my photos of late have got a certain something going on with them that is proving popular, and given that I had a bit of an emotional ramble in my last post, I wanted to redress the balance a little bit and share how wonderfully positive new friendships can be, even when they sometimes cause us to scrutinise our lives in ways that can be challenging.
The photos in this post were taken because a friend said he expected some Christmas themed photos in his phone on Christmas Day, and the photos in Instinct were taken moments before I left for his house. There are many images on this blog that have landed in his phone first and his reaction to them is so fucking perfect that it makes the way I feel when I take them totally different to how I feel when I’ve just been taking them solely for use on the blog.
The same could be said for the effect he’s had on a stretch of my erotica. I am a writer, or perhaps just a creative that loves a muse. That love affair I have with muses has perhaps led me down some dubious paths in the past, but goddamn I can’t resist that bubbling in my belly and the quickening of my heart that comes from being inspired by another person. It is entirely addictive.
Many new worlds have been born within me with the beginning of a new friendship and one world does not necessarily end because another begins. Though some do perhaps exist more intensely than others at varying times and it’s fair to say the current world that is swirling inside me is oozing in my creativity in a big way.
If I shared every piece of erotica that was actually loosely based on a moment with him then it would be a ridiculously long list. Tribute would be a good summary of how he inspires me though.
In January I will be blessed with the company of old friends too and I cannot wait for that either, because they stir other worlds inside me and I love exploring those too. I am a lucky lady and I have lots of wonderful people in my life and even when I’m navigating feelings that might be a bit tricky for me I am still extremely grateful for the awesome people that I have in my life and all the worlds they have born within me.
